Introducing Customizable Notification Sounds for Mailbird We are 3 weeks into our month-long hackathon and we’ve already put some heavy work into features like our upcoming contact sync.

Why we decided to give April Fools’ Day a pass

Posted by Jason Ephraim on April 2, 2016

It seems like every year, the internet gets a little bit more tired of April Fools’ Day. It’s not that the ideas are any less funny, absurd, or creative. Quite the contrary – I find it amazing that so many major brands are still able to come up with such outlandish and surprising ideas that, in many cases, are just crazy enough to be plausible.     But, the problem is, you can’t take an event like April Fools’ and commercialize it much before it loses it’s meaning. It’s just not as fun when you know what to expect, when to expect it, and are bombarded by it from every source on the web. It’s hard to laugh when fifty people are telling you a joke at the same time, shouting over each other to be heard – even if they are all funny.   So, rather than enter the shouting match, ourselves… We decided to take a break from April Fools’ this year, and focus on continuing to work on improving our email client even more. Maybe all April Fools’ Day needs is a break, itself? Maybe more brands and media outlets would do it a favor by opting out, at least until it has a chance to become unexpected that they would participate? I’m not sure. But, I do feel like we made the right choice this year in avoiding it and I hope our users and fans will agree with me. Have a wonderful Friday, and enjoy your weekend! Best, Jason Ephraim   P.S. before…

A 2016 Valentine’s Day Gift for Singles Everywhere

Posted by Jason Ephraim on February 12, 2016

Being single on Valentine’s Day can be rough Even as far back as middle school, I can remember the sad feeling I got when I didn’t get a Valentine’s Day card. As wonderful as Valentine’s is for couples, it can be an equally depressing time for people who are still looking for love. For some singles, it’s a day that almost seems to be designed to make it painfully-clear that everyone has found love but you (even if that isn’t true). Amidst a flurry of social updates, flower deliveries, and all the professions of undying love happening all around you – it can be tough to stay positive if you happen to be single on Valentine’s. That’s why we wanted to help single people this Valentine’s Day Actually, we wanted make it easy for everyone to help out single people on this difficult day. So, we put our heads together and came up with an awesome idea. What if people could submit a short, encouraging message for a random single out there. “Stay positive”, “you will find someone”, etc… Introducing: The Mailbird Singles Support Messenger Service How it works: 1. First, click on the button below to begin. 2. Next, you will be prompted to enter your email & Download Mailbird. Go ahead and enter your email and click Download. 3. If you entered an email address, you will be asked if you are single or not. This is so we know if we should send you your very own message (if you are single, yourself) or…
